Call the number posted. Its an awesome experience. Kind of like grace land for performance boat entusiasts depending on whats in the shop. How long can you gawk at a 200+ mph boat? I can last a while.

I've spent some time with Doug Wright, messed around with a couple fast boats here in New Orleans, but I really want to talk to JC and see first hand what his stuff is all about.

A simple yes or no would be sufficient.
I am not asking for him to state their layup schedule.

In terms of a composite, all I meant by it was:
Is it 100 % solid Carbon Fiber as Dean states or does it have a secondary material being used for other characteristics.

I give people here on OSO a lot more credit to realize that a company like Mystic would not be using polyester to build their boats. Not even for a toilet.

Here is a good read read on Composites:

Introduction to Composites


As far as this thread, I don't see any bickering and it is still on topic in terms of what JC had posted:

Sharkey, the entire boat is cored except for the transom which is a solid laminate.

Brad, either drop me an e-mail at [email protected] or call me in the shop at 386-736-2247.

Yes our race boats are primarily carbon, actually 7 different carbon fibers of varying weights and fiber orientations and two different types of epoxies (both Gougeon Bros. Pro Set). The entire cockpit however is fully surrounded by both carbon and Kevlar to keep the occupants safe in the hopefully unlikely event of a collision with another boat. The entire boat is built using epoxy resin impregnators and everything is vacuum bagged and then post cured in our oven that measures over 80 ft. long and 26' wide; it is larger than most to fit our 70 ft. diesel express cruiser in it for post cure.

We are currently working on the structural engineering for our new open cockpit pleasure cat which will be released this year and it will have more e-glass materials in it to control costs. Our e-glass materials cost roughly $3 per square meter while the carbon is about $30 or more, and the extreme rigidity and strength that we put into our race boats isn't as needed in a boat that will only run 150 mph.

Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to seeing everyone on the race circuit and now the poker run circuit also this year. If anyone is in Daytona for Speed Weeks or Bike Week this year please feel free to stop by our shop which is about 20 minutes west of the speedway in DeLand.

JC,
I'll be up on Tuesday, and tell Dan-the-man, I've got his 500 tickets.

Thanks!
In order to be a solid laminate on the transom, I would think you would have a combination of Carbon Fiber and at least one other type of FRP especially since no coring is used.

Thanks again for your first hand input on this subject.
